I was in Otley as a trip down memory lane and I wished to stay there for two nights. I found Dowgill House on the internet and booked a room from South Africa.

Well equipped and presented rooms, very comfortable beds, good food at breakfast time plus all mods such as wifi, freeview tv in a small [4 rooms]...

This place is a home from home more than a b&b. The owners who live on the top floor were very friendly and were happy to help with anything. The rooms are lovely and comfortable, with proper tea/coffee and kettle. Exceptionally clean, could not fault anything. The breakfast is amazing, cooked to your liking with local produce. Parking is outside...

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting family close by. We had room 2 which overlooks the main road which is quite busy well into the evening and has the usual noise from people out and about. The double/triple glazed sash windows are very good at keeping out the noise but would recommend asking for a rear room if you...

We stayed at Dowgill House on a friends recommendation and so pleased that we did. The location is perfect, near all the pubs and cafes as well as a great fish and chippy next door. The rooms were spacious, clean and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was great (best mushrooms on toast). We will be back
